Mur Murs

“Disarmingly modest and closely observed.” (J. Hoberman, New York Times)

Working in Los Angeles in 1979, Agnès Varda created this kaleidoscopic documentary about the striking murals that decorate the city. Bursting with color and vitality, Mur Murs is as much an invigorating study of community and diversity as it is an essential and loving record of unusual public art—some commissioned, some illegal—as well as the artists who created it. The works range from the simply decorative to a depiction of Jan Clayton (Lassie), Billy Gray (Father Knows Best), and Clayton Moore (The Lone Ranger) as the Holy Trinity.

Tickets: $10 (members), $15 (nonmembers)

This film is part of the Varda: A Retrospective series.
